The Early Worm Gets The Bird

Atlanta, Georgia, September 26, 2008 – John Hannah and K Rain Leander present The Worm and The Bird November 7th and 8th at 9pm at Eyedrum. The collaborative performance will consist of two shows -- The Worm on Friday and The Bird on Saturday -- featuring Leander’s dance and Hannah’s music and film. Each night will blend the arts of Butoh (a slow ‘ugly’ Japanese dance), experimental film, and music to create a singular experience.

Hannah, also known as ‘Rajio’, utilizes guitar based loops, found cassettes, no input mixing, and other sources to create sound that is part musique concrète and the lighter and darker side of drone. He has performed and collaborated with Suitcases, Afternoon Tea/Language of Men Dying, Warning Lights, Autistic Mother, Mythrum and others, as well as Leander herself. Hannah credits Leander with helping him to completely reanalyze the way he approached music when he watched her perform an excerpt of her evening length work, Beauty Cubed, at the American Dance Festival.

Leander’s ‘creepy’ choreography and performances have drawn comparisons to renowned choreographer Shen Wei, with Byron Woods of the Independent Weekly naming one of her works one of the twenty-five most memorable in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area. She is honored to return to Atlanta for this performance where she spent most of her early dance career with Ondine and Company and Beacon Dance, to name a few.

Both artists cordially invite you to become immersed in this experimental collaboration -- experience the film, dance, and music as unique and complimentary entities.

Eyedrum is a collective organization whose mission is to provide a forum which supports and encourages the development, exchange, and presentation of creative ideas. The goal of Eyedrum is to create a forum that serves and nourishes the multifaceted outgrowth in the contemporary cultural arts.

Nonsense Theater Company November 19, 2008
7:30PM - - -
Price:  $5 for all three events

The Nonsense Company presents "Great Hymn of Thanksgiving / Conversation Storm",
an award-winning pair of urgently intricate pieces blurring the boundary between experimental theater and
avant-garde music, both written by internationally-known composer and company member Rick Burkhardt.

"Great Hymn of Thanksgiving" takes place at a dinner table, where the sounds of conversation have been replaced with fragmented news reports, scraps from the Army prayer manual, faux-Middle-Eastern folk tales, and disembodied cries of emergency. The sculpted sounds of the table itself — scooting chairs, singing wineglasses, squeaking forks — force this “conversation” into a confrontation with material reality.

In "Conversation Storm", three friends from three sides of the political spectrum unwillingly argue their way through a ticking time bomb scenario, revising, dissecting, and even brutalizing their own positions in the process — but time has either stopped or entered an ugly loop, and as the friends assign and reassign roles, the scenario begins to dissolve the boundaries
between real and hypothetical, past and future, day and night.

Best New Play — San Francisco Fringe Festival, 2007

Audience Choice and Best-of-the-Fest awards — Frigid Festival NYC, 2008

“Strange and compelling pieces… introspective, recursive, highly charged.… Stunningly choreographed into visual theater as well as an aural melange….”
Dave Romm, KFAI Minneapolis

“Thrilling performances... spiked with intense shots of satire. Through precise delivery and the sheer force of their concept and subject material, [the Nonsense Company] captivate their audience even as they disorient it.”
Ronni Reich, Backstage New York

“Artists to be reckoned with…. hilariously funny and awesomely tragic at the same time.”
Martin Denton, nytheatre.com

“Moving, funny, and provocative… theater at its best.”
Joey Seiler, Austin 360
